With the Epson FauxK projectors, the 4K/60 input must be limited to 4:2:0 color space and 8bit color.
You can not go higher for the color space or deep color with 4K/60, or you exceed the 10.2 GBps...

Like someone else said, only 1080p on some pay per view stuff, and they offer 4K on like 3 or 4 channels,

For a Monoprice cable that is longer than 25 ft, you need the Cabernet or the Luxe cables.
